    I am a parent of two. One freshman and one Junior. I have been very happy with EHS. My kids are challenged and for such a small community, there are lots of course offerings. The teachers, though relatively low paid, care immensely about the kids. Learning takes place here. Much better than the schools in bigger cities. So glad we moved here.

    I'm currently a student at EHS going into Junior year, I love the school and I feel like I'm receiving an incredible education. The teachers do circulate a lot; however that just means that we get a lot of new teachers fresh out of college with tons of energy and excited to teach! The teachers care too, and in my experience are happy to help. There are also lots of AP, CP, and extracurricular classes offered. I Love EHS, the only problem I find is our lack of funding :(

    My son has been extremely happy at EHS. I have found the teachers to be very caring and helpful. The students are nice to each other and good kids. It makes me sad that the community has not passed any of the bond measures to help give some money to our schools. The teachers at EHS make considerably less money than surrounding communities, and the school is in need of safety improvements. This school does unbelievably well considering the lack of funding it receives.

    My son is about to graduate from EHS and overall it has been a good 4 years not perfect, but good. I believe the school has many really good teachers that care, at least initially. I think many of the teachers fall into a mode of apathy due to poor pay and lack of recognition for their over and above efforts. It is easy to sit in our easy chairs and criticize the school for this or that; the question I want to throw out there is what are you all doing to fix the problems at EHS to make it a great school? Although my son will graduate this May, I have made many friends at EHS and will do what I can both at EMS and EHS. Cardinal Pride Parent

    I was a student at ehs. I'm no longer enrolled there, and i thank god everyday. Now that i've gotten out of that place my grades have not only increased, but i'm getting straight A's. I'm no longer worrying about whats so come. Even my face has cleared up, because i'm not stressing day in and day out, about the work, and the teachers. Don't get me wrong. There are a few teachers there, that respect us. Rarely, us students came across a teacher that actually cared about us, and made us want to do better. But i have to say, i'm one of the many ex students of EHS, that are on a better track in life. Ppl that had horrible trouble at ehs, are even getting there lives together ATTENDING THE ALTERNATIVE School! The teachers are always transfering schools aswell, which leaves no consistancy what-so-ever, for us students.

    I think Elizabeth Elizabeth high school deserves no stars what so ever. My two students, and all of their friends are treated more like prisoners, than ready to learn students. My daughter has been on honer roll all her life, and there more worried about the fact that she smells like cigerette smoke, than her grades. I wouldn't sign your kids up at EHS, if you want them to get a real chance at there education. I've seen it happen to many times at this school students quit caring, and overload on stress!!!!!

    My review is based upon being a parent with one student currently at Elizabeth High and another entering as a freshman next year. I am also a former teacher and coach with 12 years experience in public schools in AZ and CO. Elizabeth High is an outstanding school. Teachers and administration are student-oriented. The education curriculum is back to basics and the staff is committed to preparing students for success at the next level. Extracurricular activities abound and students can enjoy numerous after school activities. The community as a whole is very supportive of the school. Reading previous reviews, I find the assertion of the school being faith-based laughable. Parents looking for a smaller school experience can rest assured that their children will be offered a solid educational and extracurricular experience.

    The building is wonderful; too wonderful. There are too few AP classes. I attended EHS for 3 years and transferred my senior year.

    Two of our kids went to EHS. Good school but it has a serious problem. The school is operated by a faith based religous group. Bad for the outsiders trying to learn. The teachers leave for other schools. The future is grime for EHS, because CO schools are locally controlled- perfect for faith based orders to insert themselves into a public system. Good for Utah, but not the state of Colorado.

    Very good school. The building is poorly built, and some of the teachers are a joke, but overall a good school

    After findind this site and reading the 4 reviews posted for Elizabeth, I find it interesting that the one that puts down the school mthe most was writen very well. I guess the school is doing something right if this person is able to comunicate in such a manner. I go there and I find it to be very good. I have gone to other high schools and so far this has been the best. I went to Ponderosa and hated every monment there. Elizabeth, great! I like it.

    I went to Eliz. HS & enjoyed it very much. Now, as a college freshman teacher I've learned that EHS prepared me for college as well as any other school. I only wish the problems with the administration were not taken out on the students. The turn around of teachers and administrators is frustrating for students but there are a few gems there that make the education worth while.

    The school in general is not student or parent friendly. The teachers spend too muck time complaining about workload adn pay and not enoguh time teaching the kids. I agree wit their points, they should be paid more and have less students and more resources to teach, but our kids do need to hear that ad nosium in the classroom. The classrooms are not generally learner centered. If you have a strait A student they do OK if not they easliy get lost in the cracks. The counseling staff is exceptioanlly weak and not student centered. The principal is horrible! Not interested in the kids, teachers of the community and is never at the school.

    I don't think that this school is somewhat ok. It has its ups and downs. It needs better teaching skills. To me I don't really learn very much in some subjects. This is coming from a kid that goes to elizabeth high school. It is very stressing to me. I get homework that I don't even understand even after listening to the teachers talk and go over the assignment in school. You might not belive me cause I'm a kid and you say well he probably does not listen in class. But what you dont understand is that 70% of us do listen. Don't get me wrong, the teachers are great. I just think they need to teach a little clearer. Also explain a little more to us. All in all elizabeth is a good school.
